    • Synopsis
    • Charlotte is a veteran actress who lives with Lee, her young and faithful oriental companion, in charge of supporting a cardboard world, a supposed fame that no longer exists.
      When she learns that her fetish director, who took her to fame decades ago, travels to Paraguay to make her new film; getting a role in it becomes your next goal.
      Totally unaware that the search for the cast does not match her profile or age, she is convinced that he will want her for the role.
      Charlotte leaves everything she has in Buenos Aires, including her old house and embarks on a trip in her dilapidated motorhome until she reaches the supposed casting point. But there is nothing there, more than an advertising offer. Charlotte refuses to be part of this world she abhors, but the only way to achieve her goal is by participating in the publicity, because if she does, the production will provide her with a place in the casting of the film.
      Charlotte will face her image once again on the screen and it will become clear that she is not what she was years ago. You will also discover how technology can rejuvenate it and turn it into who it is not.
      Charlotte enters an identity crisis and stops filming. You must choose whether to accept your aging body or deny yourself and transform it completely.
      Finally, he will decide to use the technology, but not exactly that way. Learn to use this plastic world in their favor, to reinvent their image, managing not to lose their identity and accepting the new Charlotte.
